The Maryland Alumni News 

Among the many developments of 
thf Alumni Association's work during 
the past year, nothing will be more 
appreciated, we are sure, than the 
appearance of the .Maryland Alumni 
NEWS in printed form as a substitute 
for The Log which has been visiting 
our membership for the past three 

It is pleasing to announce that, 
through the cooperation of the presi- 
dent and the University authorities, 
we are able to consummate our long- 
delayed plans in getting out the 
printed publication which will contain 
news of developments at the Institu- 
tion, as well as items concerning t In- 
activities of our alumni members. 
Through the cordial cooperation of 
President Pearson, we are thus launch- 
a new era of alumni interest 
cooperation in the development 
of the association and the Institution. 
For practical purposes, it was besl 
to have the paper printed and pub- 
lished under the auspices of the Uni- 
versity, through the Bureau of Infor- 
mation. It will be edited by alumni 
representatives and its make-up will 
continue to carry alumni news, as was 

emphasized in Tin Log. 

We shall hope to have a renewed 
interest among our members in this 
publication. We are hoping that more 
and more alumni will send in news 
items and other features that will 
add to the interest and stimulate ac 

tivities of alumni groups, wherever 

they may be. 

The publication will be sent tree 
ill alumni of the Institution. It 

ons from the alumni, 

wherever they may be, and this first

deeply grateful to the preskjetrJ 
and University authorities for 
making it possible to lVdUfru-

cany a word of cheer to every 
alumnus of the Institution.

President Pearson 

Proud of Progress 

To The Alumni : 

The improvement in the ap- 
pearance of the alumni publica- 
tion, we like to think, is typical 
of the progress of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. 

The College Park Schools of 
the University have been show- 
ing constant improvement since 
their establishment in 1 8 5 G. 
We hope the time will never 
come when loyal alumni cannot 
find that improvements are be- 
ing made. 

I congratulate the alumni and 
their executive officers upon the 
fine progress being made in the 
alumni organization. Alumni 
of some other institutions have 
gone further than ourselves 
along this line, and we will bene- 
fit from their experiences. Their 
efforts, as ours, are based upon 
loyalty to Alma Mater and an 
honest desire to be of help to 

R. A. Pearson, 

President of the University.

1899, L900, 1916, L917, L918, and 1919, 
The June Ball will be in Ritchie

June 10. All alumni are urged to 

stay over. All fraternities and so- 
rorities will hold open house for their 
alumni during the week-end. 

Headquarters for alumni will be in 
the secretary's office, west wing of 
the Agricultural Building. Lounge 

and rest rooms for ladies will be

Proposed Amendment 

of Interest To Alumni 

At the recent meeting of the Alumni 
Hoard, April 11, Mr. J. H. Mitchel and 
Mr. C. W. Cole were appointed a com- 
mittee of two to report to the asso- 
ciation on June 9 concerning the new 
amendment to the constitution which 
is concerned with the abolishment of 
the present dues of $2 and the estab- 
lishment of an Alumni Loyalty Fund. 
The proposed amendment is herewith 
published for the information of the 

The purpose of the new amendment 
would be to eliminate the present di- 
vision of the alumni ranks into paid 
and unpaid members and to adopt a 
broader and more acceptable plan for 
financing the association. 

The present article, number 10, 
reads as follows: The annual dues 
shall be $2 per year, provided that 
the members of each succeeding grad- 
uating class shall be exempt from 
the payment of dues during the first 
year after graduation. 

The proposed amendment reads as 
follows: In the place of annual dues 
there is hereby established the Alumni 
Loyalty Fund to which the whole 
alumni of the Institution, including all 
members, shall be asked from year to 
year to contribute in such amounts as 
may be given. It will be the duty of 
the officers and the Alumni Board to 
allocate the proportional amount re- 
ceived from the membership for the 
support and conduct of the associa- 
tion's business, the remainder to be- 
come an endowment fund or to be used 
for the promotion of any other pur- 
pose that is desired or directed by the 
association or prescribed by the 

It is most gratifying to your 
secretary to be able to take part 
in the issuing of the first printed 
publication for our Alumni As- 
sociation. The Log has served a 
most useful purpose : nd its de- 
velopment into the Maryland 
ALUMNI News will be welcomed, 
I am sure, by every member of 
our association. 

We are indebted to President 
Pearson, also Mr. B y r d, in 
charge of the Bureau of Infor- 
mation, and other University 
authorities for their generous 
consideration and forward - 
looking policy in assisting the 
establishing of this publication. 
I feel sure it will mean much to- 
wards binding our membership 
together for advancing the in- 
ts of the Institution and 
the association, as well as help- 
ing our individual members to 
greater accomplishments in

Loyalty! what a lot of meaning is 
packed into that little word and how 
much, oftentimes, depends upon it 
for success. 

"The value of Loyalty" was the sub- 
ject of a mighty fine address deliver- 
ed ..ii June '•' to the members of the 
Alumni Association assembled here 
at College Park for the Annual Re- 

Following are extracts from Mr. 
Burruss' speech that should prove of 
interest and value to all: 

"The only reason I am trying to 
qualify as a man who has spoken 
of loyalty is because I have realized 
the pleasure of being loyal to my 
Institution's activities. I do not claim 
any credit for so doing. I am per- 
fectly selfish in my loyalty. You cannot 
expect loyalty from anybody against 
his own best interest. It is wrong 
t<> expect one to be loyal on emotional 
grounds. You cannot expect loyalty 
if it is not sound and if it is not to 
- interest to be loyal. It is to 
your interest to be loyal to Maryland, 
and it is to your interest to make the 
other fellow see it. It is a problem 
of salesmanship and ability to make 
the other fellow see it as you see it. 

"Talk with enthusiasm. Tell about 
Maryland University and what it is 
doing and make others do likewise 
and there is absolutely no limit to 
what can be accomplished by this or- 
ganization. I know it is possible. 
.Make your organi/at ion strong and 

the financial end will take care of it- 

Belf. Vnu would not be proud of the 

University of Maryland if it dwindled 
to a few do/.en students, but you 
would if it went up to ten or fifteen 
thousand student-. 5foU would be 
proud if teachers wanted to be on your 
faculty. You can make your College 

bigger and better by concerted effort. 

In order to make your Institution big- 
ger and better, make yourself a big- 

i man. for you graduated 

from it. 


"• luist told twelve apostles; twelve 

men told others, and Christianity has 
the world." 

Don't Forget! 

Make your plans NOW to

Park on Alumni and Class

Dr. R. V. Truitt Marries 

Miss Mary Harrington 

Dr. Reginald V. Truitt, professor of 
aquiculture, was married on the eve- 
ning of June 18 to Miss Mary Har- 
rington, daughter of the former Gov- 
ernor of Maryland, Emerson C. Har- 
rington, of Cambridge, Md. The 
nuptial ceremony, which was one of 
the social events of note for the 
spring season on the Eastern Shore, 
united two of the oldest families of 
the State, the Harringtons of Dor- 
chester County and the Truitts of 
Worcester County. 

Dr. Truitt, who is the son of the 
late Captain George Truitt, of Snow 
Hill, Md., was graduated from the 
Maryland State College in 1914, and 
since i:i]8 has been professor of aqui- 
culture at the University of Maryland. 
During his stay on the campus he 
has received many honors, both from 
the students nod from nationally 
known scientific bodies. 

Pollock, '23, Appointed 

Assistant Secretary 

George Findlay Pollock, who was 
recently appointed assistant secretary 
of the Alumni Association and assis- 
tant in the office Of the presiden! 
the University, is a graduate of the 
class of 1923. 

He is a native of Montgomery 
County, entering the University from 
Gaithersburg High School in the fall 
of 1919. lie received bis II. s. , 
gree from the College of Agriculture 
in 1923 and the next year was awarded 
his M. S. 

"Rosey," as he is affectionately call- 
ed by all who know him. was very 
active while at the University and was 
a biter winner in baseball and Eoi 
ball and. in bis senior year, was 

awarded the prize for typifying the 
best in athletics. He also 'won the 
.Maryland saber given to the member 

..f the Reserve Officers' Train 

Corp unit, in which he was a major, 
who does the most for the advance- 
ment of the military department. 

Before bis appointment Mr. Pollock 
was engaged in farming at Boyds, 
Montgomery County. .Md. At the 
present time he and Mrs. Pollock are 
still living at that add 1 1

ome of the group organizations dur- 
ing the year he felt that the members 
should hear from these groups. J. 
P. Mudd, '07, reported first for the 
Philadelphia group. Herbert Balkan, 
'18, of New York, told of the enjoy- 
able meetings they were having. Dr. 
Franklin gave an inspiring talk about 
the progress of the Cumberland 
group. Hanson Mitchell, '98, spoke 
of the future plans of the Baltimore 
lUp. E. P. Zalesak, '25, reporting 
for the "Old Line Club" in Washing- 
ton, issued a challenge by saying that 
he represented the "best group." H. 
R. Shoemaker, '17, of Frederick Coun- 
ty reported a good attendance at a 
recent banquet. H. M. Carroll, '18, of 
Harford County, made known that his 
group was coming fast. C. W. Cole, 
'21, of Baltimore County told of prog- 
ress with future plans. Bill Hill, '24, 
<>f Prince George's County, spoke of 
the recent organizing of a group in 
this county. Then the "baby" cried 
out, Calvert County; this group was 
formed just two weeks ago and yet 
sent Frank Day, '20, to represent 
them. Here is our plan for next 
year: More Groups, More Reports, 
and Many More present. 

Following these reports a distin- 
guished orator, Mr. W. B. Burruss, 
of Oakland, Maryland, was introduced 
by President Whiteford. Mr. Burruss 
gave a very inspiring talk on "Loyal- 
ty." This speech would arouse your 
enthusiasm and loyalty like seeing 
"Snitz Snyder" or "Mike Stevens" 
make a dash of 7.") yards for a touch- 
down in the last few minutes of play- 
to win for old Alma Mater. You 
would rise to your feet in wild ap- 
plause at such a feat — well, we did 
for Mr. Burruss, to the echo of his 
splendid message. Extracts from his 
speech will be found in the editorial 
column of this issue. Don't fail to 
read it. 

Loyalty Fund Discussed 

A report on the Loyalty Fund was 
made by Hanson .Mitchell", '98, chair- 
man, suggesting the fund as a sub- 
stitute for the present system of 
annual dues. This was followed by 
arguments pro and con. After some 
discussion it was laid on the table to 
be brought up before the Alumni 
Board with the understanding of hav- 
ing it as a separate fund, and the 
regular annual dues to continue. 

Dr. 1.. I!. Broughton, 'OS. chairman 
nt the auditing committee, reported 
that the treasury book had been ex- 
amined and found O. K. A copy of 
the financial statement was given to 
each member present. 

Dr. Broughton also, as chairman of 
committee on reunions, said that he 
had arranged for the classes to be 
together at the annual luncheon.

Lacrosse Team Makes 
Good Showing In 1930 

A line year in athletics was brought 

to a stirring close when the Maryland 
team made a sensational 

finish to defeat Hopkins in Baltimore 

on May 24, by 6 to 0, and to go over 
to Annapolis the following Saturday 
and rout Navy. ."> to 1. It was the 
worst boating either team ever had 
in the stick-wielding pastime and more 
than offset the defeat by St. John's, 
when the Old Line twelve, with sopho- 
mores tilling some of the important 
jobs, had not been fully developed. 

Maryland's great finish and 'bo 
fact that Hopkins beat St. John's 
after the latter's win over the Old 
Liners, may serve to give the College 
Park twelve the No. 1 position when 
the ranking committee of the Inter- 
collegiate Lacrosse Association meets 
in December. However, the worst 
the Old Liners can get is to share the 
top ladder with Hopkins. St. John's. 
or some other team that lost only one 
game. However, only Maryland. St. 
John's, and Hopkins have logical 
claims and the Old Liners appear to 
hold the edge. 

Against Hopkins and Navy, the Old 
Liners, coached by Jack Faher. with 
Ivan Marty as his aide, played almost 
perfect lacrosse, the one goal scored 
by Navy being a lucky, long shot that 
would not be good one time in fifty. 

Bill Evans, out home of the Mary- 
land team, with 38 goals, led the 
country in scoring for the second 
year in succession, and is conceded to 
be easily the year's greatest player 
and one of the greatest of all time.

Evans and Heagy are sure to be

to come in for a lot of consideration. 
All four were on all selected teams in 
the State where the best lacrosse in 
the country is played.

sports — football, basket-ball. base- 
ball, lacrosse, cross country, track, 
and tennis — won a total of 49 vic-

notable triumph or two was scored 
and Hopkins was defeated in every 
major sport — football, basket-ball 
twice, track, and lacrosse. 

Freshman teams figured in 40 con- 
tests in the seven pastimes, winning

The College Diploma 

The question has often been asked, 
"Of what real value is a college di- 
ploma?" To which it must be answer- 
ed that the value of a college diploma 
depends very largely upon the value 
of the individual who receives it, for, 
as in a cross-country race, so it will 
be in life — some will be leaders, others 
will take second place, still others, 
third, and many will be content to be 
"also rans," or plodders. The plod- 
ders, however, are very necessary. 

And so with the race that is now on 
l'or the thousands who graduated last 
spring from various schools and col- 
leges. The university has given them 
opportunities for cultural development 
and instruction in professions that 
will aid them to advance their finan- 
cial interests in the battle of life. 

The diploma not only indicates that 
the individual has met the require- 
ments necessary for graduation but 
that through contact with instructors 
and fellow students, participation in 
athletics and social affairs, he has ac- 
quired mental and spiritual develop- 
ment that will go far to make him a 
good citizen; a citizen who will be 
mindful of the rights of others, toler- 
ant without weakness, one who will 
believe in the higher things of life, one 
who will he capable in his chosen Held 
of endeavor, and one who will help 
those less fortunate. 

The college not only makes a definite 
effort to give the individual sufficient 
knowledge of how to make a living 
bat it also goes further in teaching

Clark Beach, '27, Is 

California Rancher 

The following letter from Clark 
Beach, class of 1927, we believe is one 
of the most interesting that has come 
into this office in many a day and we 
are sure that members of the associa- 
tion will appreciate reading it. Mr. 
Beach, who is secretary of the Tejon 
Ranchos, of Kern and Los Angeles 
counties, California, sent the letter to 
Dr. T. B. Symons, secretary of the 
Alumni Association. 

"I appreciated very much your re- 
sponse to my letter of December and 
your interest in my activities. You 
asked me at that time what was the 
main source of revenue for the ranch. 
It is exclusively a 'cow outfit', a 
matter of great pride to them here. No 
side interests, although there is prob- 
ably a wealth of minerals and abun- 
dant opportunity for agricultural de- 
velopment when a water supply is 
made available. The vast range 

exists now only for the 'cattle grazing 
on a thousand hills'. 

"Tejon Ranchos is a great cattle em- 
pire that has changed little from the 
time that it was acquired from the 
Spanish grantees. General E. F. 
Beale. a Washingtonian, first bought 
and consolidated the grants of which 
it was composed and held it against 
the Indian and white marauders when 
this section was lawless. Kit Carson, 
Alexander Godey, and various noted 
Us of that time were often found 
at Beale's adobe ranch-house and, no 
doubt, their reputation helped to de- 
fend the Ranchos against Vasquez, 
Murietta, and the other less notable 

bandits who coveted the sleek cattle of 
the Tejon. Rose Station, the ancient 
tavern on the old post road, has sold 
its last vino and carried out its last 
victim in a shooting scrape and fort 

on in Grapevine Canyon no longer 

threatens the lawless with vengeance 
of the r. s. Army. Yet there are 

heros here still. 
"Tony Araujo is vaquero foreman. 

the best cowboy in California! He is 
dark and slim and full of laughter, 
but to cowmen on the many ranchos in 
California, to the newspapers, and to 
the movies, he is the great Araujo 
of the Tejon. He leads his dark horse- 
men. Indians and Spaniards all, over 
the plains and hijrh mountains in the 
same routine that varies not a bit 
from that of years ago. No network 
of fences and small corrals on the 
Tejon. If a steer on the northern tip 
of the rantre takes a whim to go walk- 
ing, it may travel southward and 
southwestward 80 miles before it 
reaches the fence that means that 
Tejon steers may go no further. 

"The vaqueros ride a vast range here. 
The Tejon lands include broad plains 
at the southeastern end of the San 
Joaquin valley, the crescent of the Te- 
hachapi Mountains that half encircle 
them, and a considerable stretch of the 
Mojave desert on the other side. Comb- 
ing the plains, the canyons, the moun- 
tain tops for the cattle, the vaqueros 
round-up a herd each day for a 'rodeo'. 
Then the cowboy band surrounds the 
'melee of hoofs and heads' while 
Araujo and his lieutenant ride through 
them — parting out calves for brand- 
ing, dehorning, and castrating, and 
beef for the packers. (Fine beef it is, 
too. Some of our cattle, bred from 
registered Durham and Hereto rds, 
make the stalwart 'Bull Durham' look 
puny.) When the day T 's work is done, 
they bai'becue their dinner in the open 
and spread their bed rolls on the 
windy desert or in a mountain canyon. 

"I sometimes ride with them for a 
few hours when they are working near 
headquarters. Three years ago mine 
was the rare privilege to be one of 
them for a summer season. It is a 
spirited life and makes you wonder if 
we 'white collar men' are on the right 
track after all. Being secretary here 
is a princely position, in a way, but it 
is lacking in local color. Except for 
horseback rides and occasional trips 
to mountain camps, I see little of the 
ranch except the vista through the 
casement of my adobe office. That is, 
however, picturesque for a Maryland- 
er. You can see pomegranate trees 
blossoming on the edge of a dark- 
green orange orchard, and, above and 
far beyond, mountain peaks, still 
snow-capped at the end of .May.

Center Is A Problem 

Although swimming is more in 

order right now, football is in the air 

at Maryland and there is a lot of talk 
about the gridiron pastime and the 

i Hd Liners' chances. 

"Curley" Byrd got a fairly good line 
on his charges in spring practice and 
feels that he may have a fair measure 
of success in the extremely difficult 
schedule, if he can find a man capable 
of playing the center job in the right

Wilson, ISO-pound, six-foot center

has given evidence that he will come 

However, Wilson was kept out of 
basket-ball and baseball, other sports

As the players are due to report on 
September 1 for practice, more details 
will be given about the outlook in the

Food For Thought 

With the beginning of the football 
on many topics are ripe for dis- 
cussion. For example, the fact that 
rley" Byrd is about to begin his 
l'.Hh year as director of athletics at 
the Old Line School should prove of 
interest to every one whose heart is 
in tune with the fine athletic record 
chat has been made by the University 
during the past decade. "Curley" de- 
cs much praise for the fine stand- 
ards he has set at his Alma Mater 
dining this time, not only as head 
coach but as assistant to the presi- 

Incidentally it might be well to 
mention here, while so much is being 
heard these days of football material 
"from outside sources," that 80 
cent, of the men reporting this fall 
for football will be from the State of 
.Maryland. Xo finer endorsement of 
athletics at Maryland can be found 
than in the fact that during 1930 the 
University will oppose the Naval 
demy in football, basket-ball, la- 
crosse, baseball, track, tennis, and 
Another interesting bit for con- 
dition is just how the Old Line 
ball team is going to make out in 
ame schedule, the hardest 
a Maryland team has ever tackled, 
ainly "Curley" has some interest- 
ing combinations with such stellar 
players as George Chalmers and "Bill"

year and who received three letters

Reports Number ol Interesting Ex- 
periences With American 
Oil Companj 

"l-M" Tenney, '26, can tell something 

in the way of experiences in China. 
i." who left the United States in 
the tall of L928, recently wrote to I 
Zulick, '28, about his trip. An oil 
company -cut "Ed" to its headquar- 
ters in Shanghai in first-class pas- 
senger style. His route carried him 
first to San Francisco by rail, where 
he embarked. The first stop was al 
the Hawaiian Islands where a day's 
rest was had, which was spent in 
seeing the sights. Also, a rest was 
had at the Philippine Islands for two 
days. From there he went to Shanghai 
where it was necessary to land by 
small boats w-hich were rowed up 
the river to the Oil Company's port 
by Chinese oarsmen. Here it was 
necessary to spend a few rough days 
and live on hardtack rations, followed 
by being shown about the plant and 
then assigned to the V. M. C. A. in 
the American Colony, which was his 
quarters when not in the field. 

His first assignment was as field 
man, his duties being to visit substa- 
tions of the company that are manag- 
ed by English-speaking Chinese. 
These trips last approximately three 
months at a time. On the tr.p he is 
accompanied by his Chinese inter- 
preter who is also a guide. At head- 
quarters, in addition to the guide, he 
has two other servants, a house man 
and a valet, at a cost of approximately 
$2.00 per month, plus board. 

One of the trips which lasted more 
than three months furnished an un- 
usual experience. The trip was in 
Manchuria, where he spent a period 
of four days resting at a monastery. 
While there he was entertained by the 
monks who described and explained 
to him the points of interest. The 
chief occupation at the monastery is 
the tending and harvesting of crops 
that supply all their food. The atten- 
dants as a minor occupation make 
symbols and emblems for use in 
churches in that area of China. 

Returning from this trip he had 
the misfortune of getting lost through

Happy I)a.\ s 

It is felt, without a doubt, that ii' 
alumni of any college or university 
were approached and asked if their 
college days were "Happy Days" the 
majority would answer in the affirma- 
tive. In one sense of the word those 
days are here again. School is open, 
the football season is on and alumni 
"Get-together" feeling is in every- 
body's bones. You have noticed the 
alumni calendar and games that the 
alumni "Get-togethers" will follow. 
These gatherings are being organized 
and conducted by alumni with that 
good old spirit for their Alma Mater. 
During the month of October there are 
three outstanding games that hold the 
attention of all alumni and Maryland 
followers — Yale. North Carolina, and 
Virginia Military Institute. There 
will lie many alumni who will attend 
these games, and following the game 
they should take the advantage of at- 
tending the alumni "Get-together." 

The meeting of graduates from 
College Park and Baltimore colleges 
of the University, as well as the foot- 
ball team and coaches, is certainly an 
attraction. This affords an exception- 
al opportunity for the alumni of both 
branches to become better acquainted, 
to meet the gridiron squad and its 
roaches. There does not seem to be 

any reason why the Baltimore and 
College Park colleges should not be 
affiliated with the one big purpose in 
mind to make a much larger and 
stronger Alumni Association of the 
University of .Maryland. 

iioct fellow alumni and "hob 
nob" over old times is certainly a re- 
turn to "Happy Days," and especially 
during the season of the outstanding 
collegiate -port, football.

W. & L. Football Clash 

Features Home-Coming 

\\ hili- Maryland will take part in 
live foot ball games prior to that time, 
the old grads want to keep in mind 
that the clash with the Washington 
and Lee "Generals" on November 9 

will be the "Home-coming Day" at 
College Park. 

Washington and Lee, one of the 

most colorful Dixie teams that Mary- 
land plays, always has a good eleven, 
and their games with the Old Liners 
all have been decided by close scores 
and marked by line play. 

In their last meeting, in a game in 
Y\'ashington in 1928, the Old Liners 
won. 6 to 0, when "Snitz" Snyder 
toted the ball nearly 50 yards on nine 
rushes for the lone touchdown. 

Maryland vs. Yale 

New Haven, Conn. 

When Maryland visits Yale, Octo- 
ber 4, it will play its first important 
game of the season. Maryland, who 
has played Yale for a number of 
years, has won many friends and sup- 
porters in that section. The winning 
of several of the contests and tying 
some, as well as always making a 
good showing, has aroused no little 
interest in this game. 

A "Get-together" following the 
game, under the enthusiastic guidance 
r.f Dr. D. F. ("Danny") Keegan, will 
be held at the Garde Hotel, New Ha- 
ven, Conn. Don't fail to attend the 
game and then the "Get-togetlu p." 

Maryland vs. North Carolina 

Chapel Hill, N. C. 

University of North Carolina, a 
team of no little note in the South- 
ern Conference and with whom Mary- 
land has had relation for many years, 
will be encountered in the first South- 
ern game, October 11. Following the 
game, an alumni "Get-together" will 
be held under the supervision of Prof. 
R. 11. Ruffner, of N. C. S., at the Caro- 
lina Inn, Chapel Hill. We are ex- 
pecting a nice gathering of Maryland 
Alumni residing in the Southern 
States, both from the Baltimore and

lot of good out of three scrimmages 
they held with the All-Marines at the

their grid base from Quantico, Va., 
to the Quaker City. 

Graduate's Conversation 

Recalls Amusing Incident 

"Nat" Goodwin. '20, and "Charley," 
the Barber, in a conversation recently 
recalled the time when "Andy" Nesbit, 
before the Virginia football game in 
1921, was suffering from a pain in 
his tummy and tried to cure it by us- 
ing Sloan's liniment, which proved 
a case where the cure was worse than 
the ailment. It was a warm day and 
the exertion, with the heat and the 
sey adding to the irritation, surely 
was tormenting to -Andy." Finally 
cold water was brought to his aid 
with his ft How football players form-

was necessary to give relief. 

"Bucky" Clemson Candidate 

For Rooting Championship 

"Bucky" Clemson. Baltimore den- 
tist, is a candidate for champion root- 
. Maryland teams. He is one 
alumnus who spends a .meat portion 
of his off-hours at College Park and 
seldom misses a game of any impor- 
tance in any sport. In fact, "Bucky" 
runs down frequently during the fall 
to watch the gridders practice. 

He subscribes to all publications 
gotten out at College Park, including 
even the year-book, and. when he meets 

up with someone in touch with ath- 
letic affairs at Maryland, he can ask 
more questions than a Philadelphia

If anybody at the University of 
Maryland were superstitious, he cer- 
tainly would feel that the football 
team representing: the University has 
a jinx attached to it, as the Old Liners 
certainly have seemed to play in the 
toughest kind of luck in their games 
with Yale and North Carolina, espe- 
cially against the latter. 

October 11, at Chapel Hill, Mary- 
land apparently did everything just 
a little bit better than North Carolina, 
yet it lost by four touchdowns to 
three. That, from a jinx standpoint, 
might be attributed to luck, but noth- 
ing- would be further from the fact. 

Maryland has a good football team. 
That it has offensive power has been 
proved by 14 points against Yale, 
and 21 against North Carolina. And, 
as tar as any consistent running or 
forward-passing attack is concerned, 
the Old Liners have most of the time 
Stopped everything their opponents 
have had to offer. Under such con- 
ditions it might seem a part in the 
victories its opponents have won. 
However, the actual truth is that 
Maryland has, in comparison with the 
teams it has met, an inexperienced 
"green" eleven; and the margin 
which has g-ivcn the other elevens 
victory is the margin that lies be- 
tween inexperience and experience. 

It has been a case of experience 
taking; advantage of the mistakes of 
the inexperienced. However, if the 
Old Liners continue to profit by their 
mistake, there will be another stor\ 
to tell before the season is over. 

Many who saw the two games lost 
feel that if .Maryland had held the 
ball as well in the Yale game as they 
did against North Carolina they would 
have won from Yale. 

Several members of the foot i. all 

team virtually played no football 
at all before entering- Maryland. Con- 

tently Maryland will gel bettei 

On and it is far 

from bad now. Home-coming Day 

should see an improved football team 

that is composed mostly <>f junior and 
lophomore playi i

Backs Home-coming 

The Home-coming- Day is that day 
among days that should receive the 
honest BUppoii of every alumnus. 
The prog-ram will give every oppor-

feel, is a feature of the day that will 
be greatly appreciated by all mem-

Maryland Alumni Group 

Started In Far South 

Following the University of North 
Carolina football game, Oct. 11 at 
Chapel Hill, a group of alumni from 
both branches of the University had 
an enjoyable "get-together" at Caro- 
lina Inn. "Curley" Byrd, Dr. Bomberg- 
er, and Mr. Watkins gave the group 
very interesting talks on the progress 
being made by the institution. In- 
spired by the "get-together," several 
of the alumni expressed their inten- 
tion to return for Home-coming Day. 

With an attendance of more than 
25 people, this "get-together" will be 
the nucleus for forming a large and 
prominent Southern Regional Group 
of the Alumni Association. Prof. R. 
H. Rufl'ner, located at North Carolina 
State College, Raleigh, N. C, is the 
chairman of the group. Prof. Ruff- 
ner will appreciate a visit 
alumni whenever they pass his waj . 
He also feels that they are off for a 
growing organization.

"M" Club Members Urged 

To Attend Home-coming 

The day's events for Home-com- 
ing have been so arranged that all 
alumni may attend with the maxi- 
mum of convenience and pleasure. 
From the starting whistle for the 
"Frosh" game at 10 A. M., there will 
not be a dull moment throughout the 
day, and a large response from the 
alumni, both in 
attendance and 
enthusiasm, may 
be expected. 

I particularly 
urge a 1 1 "M" 
Club members 
t o attend the 
luncheon and 
business meet- 
ing at 12:30. 
"Bill" Kemp as- 
sures us that a 
delightful lunch- 
eon will be serv- 
ed, and the busi- 
ness meeting is 
a matter of vital 
importance to the continued useful- 
ness of the club. 

Then, too, each "M" Club man is 
expected to "whoop up" a lot of inter- 
est among his friends and neighbors 
of the alumni, not only in the 
VY. & L. game, which should be a 
corker, but also in the brand-new 
idea of a supper-dance, where all the 
old boys and their friends may g-ather 
immediately after the game and spend 
a few hours in pleasant comradeship. 
Let's go for a big attendance on 
Home-coming Day.

There is international as well a.-

"Cuiley" Byrd. This was indicated 
by a clipping from the Paris edition 
of the New For/,- Herald sent home 
by Dr. Auchter. head of our horti- 
cultural department, who i.- tin

horticultural and agricultural sessions 
held in Europe this summer. The

was distributed far and wide by the 
Associated Press. It told about the 
football outlook at .Maryland for 1:

material this year, and should have

day in the Baltimore Stadium rolls 
around. In fact. Hopkins is planning 
a distinct comeback on the gridiron 
and will be a tough foe again for 

if not this fall, the 
hould '*e 
flying high. 

This also means that 
other sports there will 
be on the up-prade, 
and Maryland will 
meet them in every- 
thing they have. 

Cross-Country Losses Hurt 

The cross-country squad has only 
a fair outlook for this year, due to 
the loss of two aces from last year's 
team. Urban Lindsay, captain of 
last year's team, and "Jack" Savage, 
captain of the present team, have 
been lost, the former through gradu- 
ation and the latter by the effect of 
an old operation. Ralph Shure looms 
as the possible mainstay of the pres- 
ent squad. 

A baby party was given to the new* 
girls at Maryland. The freshman 
were dressed as children, and when 
they had performed all the required 
stunts they were given lollypops 
and cookies.

back to College Park 00 Nnvcmh. 
to see the Maryland football team 
play Washington and, in the : 
tare attraction of f( 
tivities, will view a high-powered and 
versatile Old Fine eleven in action. 

When this was written, the Old 

Line gridders had played four gat 

and. although they had Won only two

taken the other two had it not I.

Maryland has piled up 17 touch-

ege. 60 to »;; losing to Vale, 13 to !"; 
bowing to North Carolina. L'l to 28, 
and beating St. John's, L'l to 18. 

The Yale score is entirely mis- 
leading. Maryland really should have 
won the game, for it marched up and 
down the field, never being held for 
downs, but fumbled away touchdowns 
and presented them to Yale by the 
same method. It was just one of those 
days when it could not hold on to 
the ball. 

Maryland also greatly outgained 
North Carolina, but lost out on a 
couple of slips in a tilt that for 
thrills had few. if any, equals. 

St. John's was given a much worse 
beating than the score indicates, al- 
though the Old Line rooters had cold 
chills running up and down their 
spines in the late stages of the con- 

The Old Line regulars scored three 
touchdowns in the first three periods, 
missed two others by inches, and were 
leading. 21 to 0, when "Curley" Byrd 
decided to let the reserves play the 
St. John's feasted on 
the second - stringers 
for two touchdowns, 
but the reserves fi- 
nally pulled them- 
selves together and 
were only 18 yards 
from the Johnnies' 
goal when the final 
whistle blew. 

When the Maryland 
regulars are on the 
field they can go, and 
Byrd also can make 
a number of substi-

that do not materially 
affect the team, but

There was no game last season, a 
the teams were unable to get together 
on a date, but it is planned to make 
the contest an annual affair in the 
tut inc. 

Many Old Line followers will re- 
call the game at College Park in L925, 
which Maryland apparently had "sew- 
up,' only in toss it away in the 
last couple of minutes. The Old Liners 
were leading, 3 to 0, and were march- 
ing steadily toward the Generals' 
I, when the Maryland quarter-back 
got in a hurry to score and called 

for a forward pass. Instead of get- 
ting: it to a Maryland man, he tossed 
into the arms of Palmer, the fleetest 
rival on the field, and the ball was 

run back to a point from where Wash- 
ing-ton and Lee was able to count a 
touchdown and pull the game out 
of the lire. 

It has been said, and not facetious- 
ly, that the -Maryland player in ques- 
tion was voted a Washington and 
Lee letter that fall. "He was the 
best player we had that day," a 
Washington and Lee athletic official 

At any rate, that is history, and 
we hope none of those who come to 
College Park November 8 will witness 
anything like it. 

But. if there is anything in past 
performances, a great game should 
be on tap for Home-coming. Mary- 
land, in the language of Roy Octavus 
Cohen, will be meeting one of its 
enemies it is most fondest of.

Nothing could have happened that 
would have been more pleasant and 
satisfactory to the alumni on Home- 
coming day than the Alumni Supper- 
Dance. It bridged over that time be- 
tween the game and the annual Home- 
coming Dance in such wonderful 
fashion that nothing but laudatory 
comment was expressed. The gym 
was open immediately following the 
game and the supper-dance began at 
5:30 I'. M. Here the alumni met 
with friends and faculty of all groups 
and affiliations of the University. It 
was a real informal and congenial 
alumni "get-together," an affair that 
ended a wonderful day in "tip-top" 


When the notice in regard to the 
tickets for the Navy-Maryland foot- 
ball game at Annapolis was sent out, 
it revealed some interesting facts as 
well as caused some confusion and 
embarrassment. Many last-minute 
requests came from people who were 
runner students of Maryland, but, 
not having graduated, did not think 
they were eligible for the Alumni 
Association. Also, there were many 
who were graduates but who were 
not on the mailing list, due to their 
negligence in not sending in then 
change of address. Therefore, they did 

not receive the notice. This caused the 
athletic office much confusion and 
embarrassment, as the notice read 
that requests would be filled in the 
order received, as there were not 
enough tickets to go around. 

This only goes to prove that it is 
very necessary to keep constantly in 
touch with the alumni office for fear 
that you may lose out when some- 
thing important is >r<>injr on. 

The alumni office will make every 
effort to check on the list; however, 
this can not be done efficiently if the 
members do not keep the office in- 
formed when there is a change in 

This is a warning; it" your address 

is not correct, notify this office at 
once; if you know of any one who was 
a former student at any time and not 
on the list, send in his name. 

President Pearson and Family 

Dr. and Mrs. Pearson and their daughter Ruth were among the loyal Mary- 
land routers on Home-coming Hay. Dr. Pearson feels that Home-coming Day 
is a day that should receive the support of the entire University. Dr. and Mrs. 
Pearson also attended the Alumni Home-coming Supper-Dance where they met 
many of the old and new grads in an informal and congenial way. 

Dignitaries At Maryland 
Navy Game Get Bouquets 

Floral bouquets of American Beauty 
roses were presented to Admiral and 
Mrs. S. S. Robinson, of the U. S. 
Naval Academy, and to Governor 
Albert ('. Ritchie, of Maryland, at the 
Navy-Maryland football game at 
Annapolis. Three demoiselles from 
the co-educational branch of the Uni- 
versity made the presentation while 
the University band played an appro- 
priate accompaniment. The young 
ladies were: Misses Eleanor Baumel, 
Ada Conklin, and Elizabeth Norton. 


Dr. Bomberger, Senator Tydings 

These three loyal rooters can boast 
of seeing .Maryland play many a foot- 
ball game at home and abroad. Here 
they are on the bench when the Home- 
Coming game arrived. 

Dr. F. I>. Bomberger, '94, now a 

member of the athletic board of the 
University misses only those games 
that unavoidable circumstances pro- 

Senator M. K. TydingS, '1(1. can 
always be seen on the Maryland bench 
when the team is playing within a 
range that does not take him far 
from official duties. 

Dr. E. P.. Friedenwahl, an instructor 
as well as an alumnus of the Medical 
School, said that jroing to the Mary- 
land football Karnes is his way of

turning to the campus. Following the 
luncheon, the annual meeting of the 
"M" <lub was held in the Home Eco- 
nomic^ Building. Several interesting 
topics were discussed and prominent 
among them was the resolution by 
Mr. James M. Burns that the club 
sponsor the choosing of an all-time 
Maryland football team by the entire 
Alumni Association; this was accepted 
with favor and interest. The entire 
personnel was reelected to serve an- 
other term. 

The Home-coming game with Wash- 
ington and Lee, although one-sided, 
was a spectacular and interesting 
game for the alumni for they saw 
many gridders show their worth under 

Supper-Dance Popular 

Following the game, the feature 
of the day began at 5:30 in the Ritchie 
Gym, the Home-coming Alumni Sup- 
per-Dance, where the grads of all 
classes, organizations, anil affiliations 
had a real "Maryland Get-together." 
Actually it was a juvenile get-together 
in a unique and congenial way. The 
gym was decorated in black and gold 
streamers forming a dome. Around 
the edge of ihe gym there were tables 
arranged in the style of a Fifth 
Avenue cabaret with ample room for 
dancing. The tables were decorated 
in black and gold with novelty nap- 
kins with athletic figures on them and 
novelty hats for each guest, which 
added much color to the occasion. The 
alumni sat about the tables, smoked, 
talked, and danced and for three hours

joined by many of the undergraduates 
who added the youthful spice and 
gayety that ended for the old grad

leaving, "Those who have missed this

Md. Is Real Rival of Middies 

When Maryland and Navy clashe I 
at football on November 22 at \ 
napolis in the first of a three-game 
es that doubtless will go on indefi- 
nitely, it brought the OKI Liners and 
Midshipmen together in all sports that 
both support. 

While they also meet in baseball, 

track, tennis, rille-shooting, and ci 

country, it is the basket-ball and la- 
crosse battles that have provided the 
high spots besides football. Basket- 
ball and lacrosse occupy feature pla 
on the Naval Academy lists. 

Prior to this season. Maryland and 
Navy had met five times in football, 
the first time being when the "Aggies" 
unphed back in 1888. Navy won 
in games of 1905, 1906, 1916, and 

"Curley" Byrd played in the 1905 
and 1906 games, while "Bill" Ingram, 
Navy coach, was the Middies' star in 
the 1917 clash.

cluded Kirn's sprint and most of the 
ground covered by the Annapolitans

the Old Liners' was mainly in the

It was a tough game to lose, but 
Maryland lost no prestige in the nar-

friends by its game comeback after

Old Liners' lli-game schedule. 

The Old Liners and Green Terrors 

have met a good many times on the

land having a big edge, although the 
Complete record has not yet been run. 

However, since football relations were 

renewed, two years ago under a four- 
Near agreement, the teams have bin 
ken even. Maryland won. 13-6, at Col-

fall. 12-0, in the Baltimore Stadium. 
Both games were real battles.

toward cooperation, but it is sporadi- 
cally, here and there by individual 
efforts, instead of with a common,

We need more groups organized 
where none exists at present. Those 
that are organized will have more 
"get-togethers" to strengthen the 
bonds of friendship and loyalty be- 
tween us all. 

We have the vision, but do not know 
how to realize it. The vision is the

Byrd Chosen President 

By Dixie Grid Coaches 

II. c. ("Curley") Byrd, who began 
his 19th year as athletic leader and 
football coach at Maryland this fall, 
and who in addition holds the more 
important position of assistant to the 
president, has been chosen president 
of the Southern Conference Football 
Coaches' Association. 

Maryland, through "Curley," was 
one of the charter members of the 
Southern Conference, and he has been 
a factor in the affairs of the organi- 
zation since it was founded more than 
10 years ago. 

Membership in the conference has 
made possible alliances that other- 
wise would not have been brought 
about and has greatly strengthened 
Maryland's athletic position. Its rules 
doubtless are the strictest of any or- 
ganization in the country.

Liners were up against more experi- 
enced squads and it was only because 
they were a well-drilled, fighting com- 
bination that thev fared as well as 
they did. 

Some Pleasing Victories 

Victories were scored over Johns 
Hopkins, traditional rival; Washington 
and Lee, before the old grads on 
Home-coming Day, and the "Big 
Four" of the Old Dominion, these 
being, in addition to the Generals, 
Virginia, V. M. I., and V. P. I. 

These four wins gave Maryland a 
4 to 2 rating and seventh place in the 
Southern Conference, as the Old 
Liners were nosed out by North Caro- 
lina and beaten by Vanderbilt in other 
tilts within the Dixie organization. 

Maryland gained nearly as much 
ground as Yale in bowing to the Elis 
at New Haven; outgained North Caro- 
lina in losing a close decision; more 
than matched Navy in ground gain- 
ing in a 6 to defeat; gave Vander- 
bilt a fine battle, and conceded only 
a slight edge to Western Maryland's 
powerful and highly experienced, un- 
beaten eleven that scored in the last 
quarter to win, 7 to 0. 

On All-State Elevens 
Maryland was well represented on 
the various all-State elevens as picked 
by Baltimore writers. "Al" Pease, 
end, and "Jess" Krajcovic, guard, were 
unanimous choices; "Shorty" Chal- 
mers, back, was on most of the teams, 
and "Bozey" Berger and "Ray" Pop- 
pieman, backs, and "Ernie" Carliss, 
tackle, were picked by one or more of 
the experts for their first combinations. 
"Jack" Norris, end. was on all the 
second teams, and "Skippy" Faber, 
center, was runner-up selection on one 

Only five men will be lost from the 
Old Line 1930 squad of 37. "Bill" 
Evans, back, and "Bill" Fisher, tackle, 
will be the only regulars to go, along

I leckman and Paul Butz, line reserves, 
who did not get into many games.

Freshman Eleven Does 

Well and Wins Twice 

Although they won only two of five 
games during the past football cam- 
paign, the Old Line yearlings did well 
against five strong opponents. 

Virginia and North Carolina fresh- 
men were beaten and close games lost 
to the V. M. I., Washington and Lee, 
and Georgetown yearlings. 

Twenty-seven of the rookies stuck 
to the finish of the campaign and some 
good Varsity prospects were noted. 
Spring practice likely will tell how 
many will be asked to report for the 
Varsity squad early next fall.

B3 a conversation with the offi- 
cers of the Diamondback, a student 
publication, it was learned that many 
alumni were on its list of subscribers. 

This interest in the student activities 
by the alumni prompted the publish- 
ing of the campus notes in the Alumni 
News. The percentage of subscribers 
may be small, compared to the number 
of alumni on our mailing list, but it 
docs show that they are interested in 
the activities of the student body. 
Many alumni nearby no doubt would 
wish to attend certain student activi- 
ties which they themselves were in- 
terested in while students. Attend- 
ing student functions also presents an 
opportunity for the student to learn 
more about the purpose of the Alumni 
Association, and also to keep the in- 
terest and spirit of the alumni alive. 

The annual report, published in 
School (nid Society, shows, that on 
November 1, last, there were 578,671 
full-time students attending 4:>1 in- 
stitutions of higher learning of all 
types in the United States. This was 
an increase of three and one-half per 
cent, over the total for November 1. 
1929. The three leaders in enrollment 
are California, Columbia, and Illinois. 

The year 1931 should be an out- 
standing one in the history of the 
Alumni Association. The Grand lie- 
union of all classes at College Park, 
on June <i. is expected to be the most 
interesting and outstanding feature 
of the year. Also, the graduation of 
the largest class in the history of 
the institution will be of importance. 
In addition to these important events 
of the year, the more important fea- 
ture is the increase in the in1 
and feeling of the alumni in the 
growth and affairs of the association 
and the university. It is hoped by 
.,t ion officer and the adminis- 
tration heads of the university that 
such interest and feeding of the alumni 
will continue to grow as their assis- 
tance is of great importance in the 
building "t" a bigger and better uni- 

At the time that this was written, 
■ ral alumni groups had scheduled 
their annual tret-together dinners, but 
> had been held. The Frederick 
group was dated for the .'!0th of Jan- 
uary while Philadelphia and Cumber- 
land were to hold theirs February 4 
and 7. respectively. The group "get- 
togethers" will afford an exceptionally 

i opportunity to arouse the inter- 
est of the alumni, to see old friends, 
and pave the way for the greatest re- 
union of Marylanders in history, at 
College Park in June. Other groups 
will have "get-togethers" later in the 


Is Football Overemphasized? 

All this talk about overemphasis 
in football brought a statement from 
Dr. R. A. Pearson, president of the 

"There is no overemphasis on foot- 
ball at the University of Maryland," 
declared Dr. Pearson. "I feel that most 
of the other institutions of the South 
are not overemphasizing the sport." 

"The question of overemphasis in 
football," he continued, "is largely 
a matter of what is meant by over- 
emphasis and consequently opinions 
of individuals would differ to the ex- 
tent of their varying points of view. 
The same question might be asked 
about any subject taught in a uni- 
versity. You could never get a pro- 
fessor of chemistry, for example, to 
think that too much time is being 
given to laboratory courses, or, in 
other words, that his subject is being 

"On the contrary, the professor in 
English or psychology might easily 
think, and in many cases actually does 
think, that chemistry is overempha- 
sized. Of course, I speak of these 
particular subjects only as a compari- 
son," he said. 

"Overemphasis in football in any 
university is entirely a matter of ad- 
ministration, just as it is in other 
phases of university work. It is a 
problem for each individual and ul- 
timately will be solved by each insti- 
tution in its own way and probably 
the solution in all cases will not be 
by the same methods," he concluded.

Plans for the improvement of the 
service at the university dining-hall 
are rapidly going ahead, and in their 
tentative form include the assignment 
of a host at each table to distribute 
the food, entertainment, such as mu-

occasional placing of girl students at 
tables with the men. 

After the opening of the second se- 
mester the student government will 
sponsor the resumption of the dances 
following basket-ball game held in 
the Ritchie Gym. 

The Greek fraternities are planning 
their series of basket-ball contests. 
The contests will be held under the 
supervision of the Interfraternity 
Council. Dates as yet have not been 
arranged. Call or write the alumni 
office and the dates will be given as 
soon as known. 

William Kricker, of Sparrows Point, 
has been appointed the chairman of 
the Junior Prom Committee. The 
date of the prom has not been set as 
yet, but it will probably be the latter 
part of March. The prom will usher 
in a gala week-end, which will be 
followed by house parties of the 
fraternities and sororities, culminat- 
ing with the annual interfraternity 
tea dance in the Ritchie Gym. 

A committee has been selected to 
make arrangements for the Calvert 
Cotillion which will be held Friday, 
February 27. Arley Unger is chair- 
man of the committee. 

Elizabeth Mims, who hails from the 
western State of Oklahoma, has 
gained a place of prominence in stu- 
dent leadership. 

Two new fraternity houses, valued 
jointly at approximately $75,000, have 
recently been completed near the 
campus. Delta Sigma Phi's new edi-

Eppley Looking Forward 

To Fair Track Campaign 

Coach Geary Eppley of the track 
team, who has about 25 men working 
out indoors, hopes to have a combina- 
tion that will approximate the 
strength of last year's by the time 
the outdoor season gets under way. 

Eppley lost five of his six leading 
point winners of last year and is now 
facing a difficult task. 

Maryland will take part in the in- 
door meet at Virginia next month; 
Catholic University games in Wash- 
ington on March 7, and probably one 
or two others. 

The outdoor schedule will be about 
the same as last year witti Navy com- 
ing to College Park for Field Day 
on May 2.

fur the Short Course Agriculture stu- 
dents aa well as those taking the full 
four-year course. He attended these 
lectures, with the permission of Prof. 
W. T. L. Taliaferro, and was so much 
impressed with them that he became 

interested in the poultry field and 

decided to specialize in the subject. 

When he graduated, in 1911 with a 
B. S. degree, he presented the first 

thesis that was ever written at Mary- 
land on the subject of poultry. For 
era] months Following his gradua- 
tion he was engaged in dairy work 
in the Maryland Experiment Station. 
In August, 1912, he received an ap- 
pointment as junior animal husband- 
man on poultry investigations in the 
United States Department of- Agricul- 
ture, which position was held until 
1920. At that time, he resigned from 
the Department of Agriculture to as- 
in the organization work of the 
National Poultry Institute, in which 
he now holds the important position 
of secretary and treasurer. In ad- 
dition to being secretary of the in- 
stitute, he is business manager of the 
National Poultry Journal, a publica- 
tion devoted to poultry, which is pub- 
lished by the institute. 

In 1913, he married Miss Edna Sib- 
ley Hut son and they have made their 
home in Washington, D. C, constant- 
ly since 1914.

In view of the fact that the team 
was hard hit by the loss of players, 
through graduation, withdrawal, and 
injury and lacked reserve strength, 
the showing was really remarkable. 

Practically all the basket-ball was 
played by five men — Ed. Ronkin and 

Shorty Chalmers, forwards; Jack 
Morris, center, and liozey Berger and 
Charlie -May, guards. 

Frenchy Cohan, Hob Wilson, and 

Bus Pitzer were the leading reserves, 

With Fred Stieber and Skippy Faber 

being the only others to be with the 

id at the finish. 

linger and Ronkin were picked as 
all-State players by Paul Menton, 
noted official and expert, who also is 
sporting editor of The Evening Sun, 
of Baltimore. Berger was labeled 
the best player in the State and Men- 
ton found it difficult to choose between 
Ronkin and Chalmers in awarding 
Maryland its second man. 

Berger was the leading point-scorer 
with 172, the others counting as fol- 
lows: Ronkin, 141; Chalmers, 121; 
Norris, 117; May, 31; Cohan, 11; Wil-

Boxing Team Fares Well 

For Its Debut Campaign 

Maryland's test season in boxing 
proved more of a success than was 
expected, the Old Liners, who lost 
all three of their meets, winning 8 
bouts in 21. Washington and Lee 
was met twice and V. M. I. once. 

Bernard Keener, a welterweight, 
was the only Old Liner to win three 
bouts. Francis Holloway, light-heavy; 
Jimmy Decker, bantam; Karl Mech, 
middleweight; Ted Keenan, heavy- 
weight, who won his only contest; 
Frank Isemann, and one or two others 
did some good work. 

Coach William Whipp now is work- 
ing with his pupils, looking to the fu- 
ture, and should have a fairly well- 
balanced organization by next year.

We regret to announce the death of 
John W. Mitchell, of the Class of 1906, 
who died April 10, 1929. His death 
was not known until a reply from his 
administrators was received in an- 
swer to a classmate's letter. 

Mr. Mitchell is survived by his wife, 
Mrs Edna H. Mitchell, now residing 
at 609 Carolina Street, Key West, Fla. 

"General" Mitchell, as he was bet- 
ter known by his schoolmates, grad- 
uated in the civil engineering course 
from the old Maryland Agricultural 
College with the class of 1906. For 
many years he was connected with the 
engineering department of the Florida 
East Coast Railway. The name "Gen- 
eral," it was learned, was an inherited 
name from a relative of the class of 
1904, Walter Mitchell, the original 
"General Mitch."

Dr. Clenworth Sturgis 

We regret to announce the death of 
Dr. Glenworth Sturgis, '05, who died 
in August, L929. His death was not 
known until John P. Mudd, '07, ac- 
cidentally came in contact with Dr. 
Sturgis' brother, a printer in Phila- 

Dr. Sturgis was a prominent educa- 
tor, churchman, and civic worker and 
his death was a shock to his many 
friends and a great blow to the Perth 
Amboy High School of which he was 

Dr. Sturgis was born in the State 
of Delaware in 1882. When he was 
nine years old his family moved to 
Snow Hill, Md. He graduated from 
the old .Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege in 1905 and a year later secured 
his Master of Science degree. In 1909 
he received his Ph. D. degree from 
his alma mater. 

He is survived by a wife, -Mrs India 
Sturids, and three daughters, Winifred, 
Margaret, and Kathryn, and one

Will Have Reading-room 

The beautiful reading-room is de- 

iiig of special mention. It is a 
large and spacious room, with ample 
windows on all sides that provide the 
much desired natural litfht for read- 
ing and study. The electric li^'htin^ 
tem represents the latest and best 

aa in indirect artificial lighting. 

Two hundred and eighty-six per 

can be accommodated at the -l large 

reading tallies. 

The interior decorating scheme is 

of the Colonial order. The walls are 

painted Colonial cream and the win- 
dow hanging tan mohair. The 
finish of all woodwork is walnut. 

The capacity of the new library 
stacks is 50,000 hooks, and as at pri 
cut the University has but a little 
i 30,000 volumes it can be seen 
that reasonable provision has been 
made for expansion. Bowever, the 
librarian reports that many new and 
valuable volumes are to be added in 
the near future. 

There is also located in the library 
building the new private branch tele- 
phone exchange for the entire Uni- 
versity, which went into effect April 
1. The number for the University on 
the new exchange is Berwyn 80.

the family. Robert (Bunt) Watkins 
presided as toastmaster. Dr. Ray- 
mond A. Pearson, president of the 
University ot .Maryland, gave greet- 
ing remarks. Coach Burton (Ship) 
Shipley gave a reminiscent talk about 
winning the tournament and each 
member of the squad was heard from. 
H. C. (Curley) Byrd, assistant to the 
president and athletic director, intro- 
duced the guest of honor. Mr. Miller 
spoke from his own experiences in 
college at Notre Dame and also from 
observation as a coach at Indiana and 
Navy. Some of his remarks about 
the value of participation in athletics 
were exceptionally worth while. 

"We hear a 
good deal about 
in college ath- 
letics," said 
Miller, "yet I 
have heard no 
man define just 
what is meant 
by overempha- 
sis. Certainly 
I do not know 
what is covered 
by the term.'' 
Mr. Mill e r 
spoke of the 
fine athletic 
relation ship 
that exists 
between Navy 
and Maryland 
and that Navy is looking forward 
to the football game to be played in 
Washington, October 10 next, and 
right now they are building for tiiat 
game, "because we Navy people want 
to win that game just as much as 
you fellows do." 

Toddy Riggs, '20, athletic director 
of St. John's CoUege, Dr. A. W. Val- 
entine, secretary of the Mary]: 
medical alumni of Washington, D. C, 
Dr. T. 1!. Symons, '02, secretary 
the Genera] Alumni Association, also 
gave interesting talks. 

The banquet room was decorated 
with Navy and Maryland banners and 
pennants. Entertainment was fur- 
nished by Yoeman and McClue, radio 
performers, from station W'MAi . 

Election for the ensuing year was 
as follows: Wellstood While. '05, 
president; Dr. C. W. Valentine, vice- 

pn sident; Chauncey 111 own. se< retary- 

treasurer. Eddie Ruppert and II. I'. 

(Moon) Hartshorn were elected to 

Wellstood White 

the board of directors to fill the va- 
cancies of the expired terms. This 
closed the greatest "get-together" 
i held by the Old Line Club. 

Wellstood White, newly elected 
president, was born and raised in 
Montgomery County, fiiaduated with 
the class of 1905 in civil engineering 
at the Maryland Agricultural College, 
now the College Park Schools of the 
University. Since .eraduation, his ac- 
tivities in business affairs have given 
him eminent success. At present he 
is manager of the nationally known 
Dulin and Martin Department Store 
of Washington, D. C. 

When the United States entered 
the World War, he immediately en- 
listed and was sent to France, as an 
officer, where his good work gained 
for him many promotions. He re- 
tinned to America a major and at 
present has the rank of Lieut.-Col. 
in the Officers Reserve Corps.

The Value of a Diploma 

' I '///*' VALUE of a diploma depends upon tin standing of the insti- 
-*■ tittiini that issues it. If tin i nst it at iu,i grows stronger, and more 
'I, tin diplomas which it has issued will be prized more highly. 
If it languishes, the diplomas will h< prized less anil less. So here is 
a reason why alumni always will he interested in tin /not/res* of their 
Alma Mater and H is an argument for their help in unit proper way. 

President Raymond A. Pearson. 

Sen. M. E. Tidings, '10, 
Grand Reunion Leader 

Senator Millard E. Tydings, '10, 
i m r eminent member of Congress, was 
the father of the "Grand Reunion" 
thought. "Chief" Tydings, as his 
classmates call him, said last year at 
the annual meeting, "I have been to 
many alumni meetings, and yet I 
haven't seen as many faces here as 
I would like to see. There are many 
friends in other classes that all of us 
would enjoy meeting. In 1931, let's 
have a "Grand Reunion" of all classes 
and make it the greatest gathering of 
Marylanders in history!" 

Senator Tydings is one of Mary- 
land's outstanding alumni who never 
stands back when he can be of assis- 
tance to his Alma Mater. What a 
great day it will be for "Chief" Ty- 
dings to see a thousand faces on the 
campus at College Park !

Our Faculty 

Our faculty are deeply interested 
in the return of former students of 
Maryland on Alumni Day. The deans 
of our respective Colleges and several 
older members of the faculty, from 
the standpoint of service, are sending 
their expressions about the Grand 
Reunion through the columns of the 
News, with the hope that many for- 
mer students of Maryland will be 
present, June 6th. 

From Prof. W. T. L. Taliaferro 

Dear Mr. Editor: May I, as an 
honorary alumnus, be allowed a few 
words in regard to the Grand Alumni 
Reunion to be held at College Park on 
the sixth of next June? 

What do we celebrate on that oc- 
casion? The birth and growth of an 
original Maryland idea in education 
which has slowly but steadily im- 
pressed itself upon the world, and 
here at College Park has developed 
a great State University which now 
in its adolescence stands in the front 
rank of institutions of learning and 
research, and whose mature grandeur 
and usefulness no prophet may foretell. 

Why do we celebrate? Because 
every alumnus is, and should so con- 
sider himself, an integral part of the 
University. He has helped in its 
growth and he must share in its glory. 

The relations of an alumnus to his 
college are at once those of son to 
mother and parent to child, involving 
reverence, gratitude, love, joy of as- 
sociation, hope, promise, and antici- 
pation. No Maryland alumnus will 
fail in any of these qualities. 

No friendships or other ties are 
closer or more strongly knit than 
those made on the college campus. 
Hardships, defeats, achievements, vic- 
tories, jokes, tricks, pranks, hopes, 
all bind together in indissoluble chains 
those who have shared them in pain 
or pleasure. What occasion so oppor- 
tune as the Grand Reunion to renew 
these old associations, to live once 
more with kindled spirits the glorious 
years of campus life and draw there- 
from the inspiration and determina- 
tion to ever revere our Alma Mater, 
and. as loyal sons, to advance her 
fame and fortune? Respectfully. 

W. T. L. Taliaferro.

College of Education 

To the Alumni: 

The University regards the "home- 
coming" of its former students on 
Alumni Day as one of the most im- 
portant events of its calendar. It is 
.ed upon as our opportunity to 
bring alumni in closer touch with the 
progress the University is making. 
We also feel that the bonds of loyalty 
are greatly strengthened among old 
friends. The University, to me. is 
like the old homestead in which the 
fires are kept burning, the lights are 
bright, and. as the family grows, 
there is increased hospitality for all. 
June '). next, is the day for the 
.nd Reunion of all former students 
of the University. I hope that every 
alumnus and alumna will find it pos- 
sible to have the pleasure of spending 
day with old friends at the

Message Prom Congressman 

William P. Cole, Jr.. 10 

• w All MM : 

1 have been asked to presenl a mes- 
sage to the alumni regarding our 
"Grand Reunion" to be held on June ,; 

What sur- 
prises me is 
the number of 

graduates from 
College P a r k 

who constantly 

a n d justly 
so — boast of 
their Alma Ma- 
ter and never 
hesitate to cap- 
italize in one 
way or another 

the value of 
their diploma, 
and yet. are 
unwilling ap- 
parently to 
give one day or 
a part thereof 
to their Alumni 
A - sociation. 
True, a reunion provides an opportun- 
ity to meet old college chums and to 
reminisce over the greatest period of 
life, but, more important than that, the 
presence of each graduate at such 
meetings means new ideas, better and 
stronger cooperation and additional 
encouragement toward the success of 
the main purpose of our Alumni As- 
sociation, i. e. the upbuilding of the 
University of Maryland. 

I find so many, many graduates of 
College Park who are willing to help 
in every way possible, whether i> 
financial or otherwise. Let each grad- 
uate from College Park who happens 
to read this edition of the ALUMNI 
NEWS, pause for a moment and reflect 
upon those days when he or she was 
at College Park and in doing so con- 
clude to take a day off on June •'.. 
come to College Park and not only 
enjoy the splendid program arrai.. 
for his or her pleasure, but at the 
meeting of the alumni give advice and 
thought as to what in their judgment 
is worth while for the Alumni A 
ciation to do in helping the University. 
College Park has experienced phe- 
nomenal growth in the last twenty 
years and today it rivals in standing, 
reputation and general rating, the best 
educational institutions of our coun- 
try. Show our appreciation of what 
the administrative body and 

faculty have been doing through lib- 
eral contribution I and pains- 
taking effort, and join your class in 
the Reunion College Park 

With best wishes. I am

Alumni of Maryland: 

Since the strength of an institu- 
tion in large measure depends upon 
the strength of the bond of loyalty 
existing between the institution and 
the alumni body I am, naturally, in 
favor of gatherings of the alumni or 
of any other method which would in- 
crease the strength of that bond. 

In regard to the meeting on .June C, 
I sincerely trust that it may lie not 
only a source of pleasure and gratifi- 
cation to the alumni, to whom I send 
my warmest greetings, but an a 
of great value to the University. 

In conclusion, may I express the 
hope that hereafter a time may be 
selected for this meeting which will 
enable the members of the Alumni

the entire student body, obtain t 
hand knowledge of the activities of

Making Progress 

Handily Takes Early Contests And 

Should Be Tough Foe For 

Hopkins And Navy 

Old gratis who see the Varsity la- 
-c team in action against Johns 
Hopkins in Baltimore on May 23 and 
Navy at Annapolis a week later, in 
the last two games of the season, 
doubtless will view a combination that 
will put up a real battle. 

Jack Faber faced a great problem 
al the outset of the season, due to the 
toni the great team that wal- 
loped Hopkins and Navy so soundly 
in the last two tilts of the 1930 sea- 
son. His defense, especially, was 
wrecked, and that problem has not 
yet been solved. 

His attack has been able to carry 

the team along in the fust four 

irgia being beaten, 20 to :;; 

hington Coll' I 1 ; Western 

Maryland, 1"> to 0; Syracuse, 12 to 2, 
and IViim State. 12 to 0. 

However, following these games and 
prior to the tilts with Hopkins and 
Navy, St. John's and Rutgers had 

be met. By the time these two 
games are over, the Old Liners should 
In- at the top strength. St. John's 
with a veteran team, is the big OD-

in home, through a knee injury and 
had Jack Norris, who now appi

With Frosh Lacrossers 

"Ed" Smith, who used to play cen- 
ter in great style in lacrosse for Mary- 
land some years back, is doing - a good 
job with the yearling stick squad for 
the fourth successive season. 

Smith sprang a big surprise in his 
opening game by defeating Baltimore 
City College with his green outfit by 
a 3 to 2 score after the experienced 
schoolboys had led, 2 to 0, at the end 
of the first half. 

He will have developed some ca- 
pable material for Jack Faber for next 
on before the campaign is ended. 
His team will play five games in all. 

Faber's line-up has been as follows: 

Fred tnvernezzi, goal; Joe Deckman, point: 

Snell, cover point : Charlie May, first 

defense; Morris Nicholson, second defense! 

.lini Loughran, third defense; Gordon l'ugh, 

center; George Hockensmith, third attack; 

Jimmy Lee, second attack; Vincent Colosimo, 
first attack; Ed Ronkin, out home; Fred Stie-

leading players are: Ed Harlan and Hill Wood.

Men's, Girls' Field 
Houses Under Way 

Both Due To Be Ready By Next Fall. 

Structure On Boulevard To 

Seat About 4,500 

"Work has begun on two field houses, 
one for the men and one for the girls, 
at Maryland and both are due to be 
ready early next fall. 

While the girls', of course, will be 
much smaller than the men's, it will 
be ample for the co-eds, as the ratio 
is about one of the fair sex to four 
of the sterner sex at College Park. 

The men's field house will be be- 
tween the Washington-Baltimore Blvd. 
and the new baseball diamond and will 
take up more than half the space now 
occupied by the eight tennis courts. 
The girls' building will be on the up- 
per part of the campus just north of 
the old reservoir. 

The men's field house will seat 
around 4,500 for basket-ball games 
and boxing matches and will have 
dressing rooms for all the Maryland 
Varsity teams in addition to ones for 
the visiting athletes. There also will 
be sleeping quarters for visiting 

Another feature will be a faculty 

exercise t n that will be open to all 

members of the University staff. 

The building will be 172 feet, 8 
inches long and 136 feet wide.

Nine Takes Seven 

Of First 12 Tilts 

Maryland's baseball team has been 
going along fully as well, if not bet- 
than was expected this year as 
it was known at the outset that the 
nine had some weak spots that would 
make the going rather rough. 

Coach Burton Shipley's charges cap- 
tured seven of their first 12 games, 
■f the victories being over South- 
ern Conference rivals and the other 
at the expense of Harvard. 

It was felt at the start of the sea- 
son that if the team won half it? 
games during the campaign it would 
veil and it bids fair to accomplish 

Shipley's line-up in most of the 
games has been as follows: 
Paul Cronin, left field; "B

National Championship 
Won By Co-ed Riflers 

The girls' rifle team of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland has been returned 
national champions. Scoring 2,967

Park co-eds had a margin of five 
points on George Washington, which 
won the title in 1930. 

Members of the Maryland team who 
figured in the victory, 10 being al- 
lowed to shoot in each one of the 
three stages and the five high scores 
counting, were: 

Ruth Dibits. Dorothy Hlaisdell. Irene Knox, 
Hetty Mulligan. Josephine Knox, Felisa Jen- 
kins. Frames McCubbin. and Phyllis Oberlin. 
The team is coached by Sgt. Earl Hendricks. 

A. T. Schenck, '06, of Seattle. Wash- 
ington, reads with interest and en- 
thusiasm about the University of 
Maryland co-ed rifle champions in the 
Seattle Star. Schenck is active in 
engineering work and has constructed 
many buildings on the campus of sev- 
eral western universities. The Uni- 
versity of Washington, near which he 
lives, co-eds won 3rd place in the com- 
petition. Schenck says, "Here I am 
3,000 miles away from a famous in- 
stitution, and congratulation to the 
Maryland co-eds."

College of Enj» meeting 
Maryland Alumni : 

I hope that every engineering alum- 
nus who can possibly do so will join 
in the alumni reunion on June 6. 

Each should keep in mind that his 
presence adds not alone to his own 
enjoyment but also to that of all others 
who come. 

An addition to the Engineering 
Building is under way which will 
afford increased laboratory and class- 
room space, and also provide a small 
auditorium, all of which have been so 
much needed. 

To us of the faculty who are here, 
day in and day out, will come much 
inspiration from your presence. 

After you have been around the 
campus and met one another, please 
take a moment to come in and see us 
on Alumni Day. Cordially yours, 

A. X. Johnson, Dean.

NO more fitting subject presents

approaching Grand Reunion. Let 
forget our cares and mingle together

It will he a pleasure and a high 

privilege for us to attend the Reunion

about it. if we did not have an Alma

without a country a wasted, lonely 

life, full of torment and sorrows. 
If some id' us from other stat.

nearby points should and. if you do 

not, the court should pass a sentence

l'res. of Alumni Association 
Fellow Alumni: 

I personally would like to appeal to 
every alumnus who attended the an- 
nual meeting last year to write or 
persuade another alumnus to come 
hack with him this year. Also, if each 
alumnus who intends to return this 
year would write to several of his 
classmates urjrinK them to return, it 
would he a great help in arousing the 
interest of every alumnus. 

The success of the < I rand Reunion 
depends on you, "Fellow Alumni," 
not on those in charge of the associa- 
tion. It is your day to make or un- 
make. Your presence alone is what 
will make the Reunion enjoyable for 
your friends. 

Come on fellows, see you at College 
Park, June 6.

Old Liners Break 
Even On Field Day 

Capture Lacrosse And Baseball Games 
But Are Defeated In Track 

And Tennnis 

Maryland got an even break in its 
hit,' field-day program on May 2, the 
lacrosse team trimming Penn State, 
L3 to 0, and the baseball nine turning 
back West Virginia, 6 to 5, while the 
track squad bowed to Navy, 25 to 101, 
and the tennis players lost to William 
and Mary, 2 to 7. 

Eastern High of Washington won 
the trophy in the open interscholastic 
games with 30 points, but was closely 
pressed by Central and Tech., both of 
the Capital City, and Episcopal of 

Hagerstown retained its honors won 
in 1930 by taking the trophy for the 
five events closed to county high 
schools. It scored 14 points with Hy- 
attsville second with nine. 

Forty-six schools, 38 of them from 
within the State, competed in the 
track meets. 

Maryland simply outclassed Penn 
State in the lacrosse game, particu- 
larly in the second half when nine 
goals were scored. 

Chester Ward, in the 100-yard dash, 
and Charlie Fouts, in the high jump, 
were the only Old Liners to get first 
places in the dual meet with Navy. 

Maurice Goubeau and Bill Roberts, 
No. 1 and 2 singles players, were the 
Maryland netmen to win. 

While threatening rain, which never 
came, kept down the attendance the 
field-day program was run off in fine 
style and from a strictly athletic 
standpoint the day was a huge success. 

Dr. William B. Kemp, now assis- 
tant dean of the College of Agricul- 
ture, who used to play foot-ball and 
perform in track for Maryland, was 
the chairman in charge of the inter- 

In all, more than 500 athletes dis- 
played their skill during the day. 

"Old Grad," Stop! Look! Listen! 

Now is the time to take that plunge. 
You've been thinking, every spring 
for the past (Gosh! how many 
years?), that you'll sure run back to 
college this June and see some of the 

But, always the doubt lingered in 
your mind whether you wouldn't feel 
lonesome — whether any of your old 
classmates and college mates would 
be there too. In the end you just 
didn't make the effort. 

Well! you haven't got that excuse 
this year. This Home-coming Day on 
June 6 is going to be about as near 
universal as it can be. This is no 
single class reunion, it is a gathering 
of the clans from the first class to the 

Yep! your class will be represented, 
too — if you will stop shivering on the 
bank like "September Morn" and will 
get into the swim. Come on in, the 
water's fine!
